The food is amazing. It's a must go to. I love setting outside by the bay in the evening time. They also have a bar outside with music.

We love Flipper's for lunch! The Po'boys and smoked tuna dip is so good. It's off the beaten path but we always swing by here for lunch after hitting the beach. Some really great views, drinks and food.

Good service but way too pricey for the average food they offer. I might come back for lunch if I docked the boat there. Nice views.

We had a lot of fun at this restaurant. The kids enjoyed feeding the fish while we were waiting for our food. Also, watching the boats come in and out was nice. The smoked tuna dip appetizer is excellent. Our food was very good. Would definitely go back to this place.

I live very close to this restaurant and often walk there if I'm craving a burger. Delicious food with a gorgeous sunset setting. It's at a marina with lots to watch and a great meal if you're doing the dolphin or other cruising available from the marina!

Food average. Service adequate. Short wait. Bar terrible. Kids loved menu and home made ice cream. Wouldn't drive out at this place to eat.

After a pounding from the wave runners, my gang was hungry and hot, so we stopped in at Flippers. The cold air conditioning after the heat wave was the best. There's a little something for everyone here. My husband and I are vegetarians and we had the Greek salad and berry salad, with an appetizer of portabellas. My oldest son... More

If you want a great view, great food AND don't want to wait hours to be seated.... this is the place for you! - After taking a dolphin tour, the deckhand told us about this local restaurant that is off the beaten path, but not far.... and we were tired of waiting 2 hours plus for dining out every night...

Family vacation to Orange Beach. We took the 4:00 Dolphin Boat tour. When we finished at 6, we made our way down the dock to Flippers. We were hot due to the two hour boat ride and just wanted to eat dinner and go back to hotel and rest. We were seated quickly and greeted by the absolute BEST waiter.... More
